Photo Of Grocery Store Worker Helping Elderly Woman Goes Viral

"This is how America should be! And hopefully this is the America of tomorrow!!!"

One worker's sweet gesture is reminding everyone that the world can be a pretty decent place. 

Bo Graf shared a photo on Facebook of Brandon Rollins, who works at grocery chain Ingles in South Carolina, assisting an elderly woman across the parking lot.

The sight, Graf wrote, left him with a positive outlook on the future. 

"This weekend left me with such doubt and sadness for Our America!" Graf wrote. "I personally haven't seen anything like this in years and thought everyone should see/feel this moment as well. This is how America should be! And hopefully this is the America of tomorrow!!!"

When Graf asked the employee about his kind act, a humble Rollins "acted like it was no big deal," Graf told WYFF. 

Luckily, Rollins' thoughtness didn't go unappreciated as he received a cake from his employers, praising his actions. 

And though Graf told WYFF that he's shocked his post went viral, he believes the gesture illustrates an important lesson that should resonate with all. 

“It doesn’t matter what ethnicity, religious belief -- we're all the same. We’re all one, and we can help each other out," he said. "That’s what people in the world need to see. We can come together as one. It doesn’t matter your background.”
